Sometimes, the things that you learn outside of the classroom are as important as the things you learn inside the classroom.
Notre Dame women’s basketball player Michaela Mabrey had moments of brilliance last season as a freshman. A trio of 3-pointers by Mabrey helped the Irish stun No. 1 Connecticut, 73-72, last January on Connecticut’s on-campus court. But as the season progressed, the 5-foot-10 guard would only hit eight more 3-pointers in 33 attempts (21 percent) in the final 25 games of the season. Overall, Mabrey was 17-of-59 (29 percent) from 3-point range. She averaged 3.0 points a game last season.
